East Midlands Development Agency (emda) has allocated more than £600,000 to a bursary scheme to encourage more students to study science-based courses at university.

The bursaries are known as EMSTAs – East Midlands Science and Technology Awards – and are available at the region’s nine universities. EMSTA awards are financial support for selected students from the region, accepted on science, technology, engineering and mathematics full-time undergraduate degree courses in the East Midlands.

There are 125 scholarships of £3,000 (£1,000 per year for three years of undergraduate study) available for 2008 entry. The initiative is a partnership between emda, the East Midlands Universities Association (EMUA) and Aimhigher East Midlands.
